We’ve recently partnered with the CAYA (Come As You Are) Coalition in support of a new facet of our FitScripts programming: GYMRATS, with a focus on Recovery from Addiction Today. The mission of the CAYA Coalition is to connect people who are impacted by addiction to support and treatment resources, and to collaborate with community organizations to support local prevention programs in Culpeper and Fauquier Counties.

Why FitScripts? Research indicates that regular exercise can increase abstinence rate for substance use by up to 95%.

As with all our FitScripts programming, GYMRATS features an 8-week doctor referred exercise program, with individualized exercise sessions that will meet twice weekly and include a nutrition session. Currently the GYMRATS program is available to residents of Culpeper, Madison, and Orange counties.

For additional information or to schedule a session, please contact PWC medical program leader Whitney Propps: wpropps@culpeperwellness.org or 540-445-5388.

Please feel free to share this information with anyone you know who might be interested.
